    Does anybody know the exact date we're gonna get our test results?
    And what would be considered a safe score for the test?

    Actually i think it was acetaldhyde the first option. Amines do form hydrogen bonds but not acetaldhyde.

    Do note people the interview is also a turning point. I know alot of seniors in my schools who did recive call for interview and still did not get in. They have a specified marking scheme for the interview as well.

    The answer to that was amines. They do not form hydrogen bonding with themselves but can form hydrogen bonds with water. Alcohols do, that's why they have high melting points. I don't remember the other options.

    Also, does anyone remember the answer of the grignard reagents wala question? Grignard reagents react with CO2 to give what? The options were primary, secondary, tertiary alcohol and acetic acid. I know they give carboxylic acids so I eas confused between acetic acid and primary alcohol (as further oxidation of primary alcohol would give carboxylic acids). I ended up doing primary alcohols but im not sure.[/QUOTE]





    The answer to the gregnards reagent was acetic acid I think I mean that is what I wrote please tell which compound does not allow hydrogen bonding I chose amides I'm not too sure if I was right

    There is a lot of confusion related to the Test and I hope to clarify some things.

    First of all, the test was just as difficult as it always has been. The Physics calculations and Time Constraint are what have been the defining features of this test. As many of you have mentioned, upwards of 5 missed MCQ's are a common occurrence (Thanking Allah that I was able to complete the Paper with time to spare and do so brilliantly). Many people also are afraid of the -1 so they skip.

    Secondly, the interview is VERY important. They WILL reject candidates with poor communication skills (especially in terms of English), poor Ethical (and Un-Ethical too) reasoning skills and little-to-no knowledge of healthcare system. They have also adopted the most difficult type of interviewing scheme, the Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) formation. This means 8-9 stations (give or take one) with about 5-10 mins on each. Any format goes. This is based on Physiological and Psychological examination criteria. No matter how good your aggregate BEFORE (Result+Test), you can still be blatantly rejected. Their concentration is on Communication Skills, Logical and Ethical/Un-Ethical Reasoning, Common Sense, General Knowledge of HealthCare Systems and Brain Storming under Pressure. Their are also dummy stations in this type of interview scheme. These are meant to trick you into safety, to take off your edge and thinking process and then suddenly confront you with something really tricky. This is meant to see if you can recover immediately?

    Also, top 300 candidates after tests are selected and called for interview. Out of these, 85 will be chosen for local applicants. 3 Merit lists will be published as students drop off (Most just want as many acceptances as they can). The International Applicants are posted separately, but if any of the 15 seats are left vacant, they go towards local applicants.

    Lastly, Results are expected around Saturday or Monday (Answer Keys + Copy of our Answer Sheets), with calls for interviews coming around 20-22 October, and Interviews commencing from 23 October (MOST PROBABLY).






    This is what I have gathered from accurate sources. Nothing is set in stone, but these can be guidelines.


    Regards,
    Asad Javeed.
    First Time Applicant for MBBS.







    P.S. Don't worry. Life doesn't end with this. Keep praying and hoping for the best (But prepare for the worst). And pray.

    You read it wrong. The Copy means the scan of our Answer sheets. Instead of carbon copies, we will be given a copy which we can match with answer keys which will be posted on Saturday or Monday. The hard copies will be sent to us through courier but they will be available before on the site. The result list will come after 20th most probably. Or after interview.

    I am aware of the fact that nothing is certain I am glad to hear that top 300 get the opportunity to get interviewed but since the interview accounts for 12% of the total aggregate. This means our test and the HSSC and SSC combined are out of 88%
    So last year apparently people who got a total of 60-65 above got the chance to get interviews obviously it's different every year but does any one have an idea of what a safe score would be eg 60? 65?
